3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From Brewcraft. Fizzy watery cola black. Small beige head, very spotty lacing. Smells like cinnamon, brown sugar, pumpkin, nutmeg, chocolate, a little minty/herbal. Tastes quite bitter in an herbal/medicinal way, like grass jelly. Not much pumpkin/spice in the taste as the aroma would lead you to believe. Body is thin, bitter, ends on an acidic note. Really nice interesting aroma but taste and palate are a letdown - a bit like slightly spicy watery coke.

Bottle from Brewcraft at home. Opaque black pour with thin white head. Aroma is pumpkin pie + porter...cinnamon and nutmeg plus roasted flavors. Taste is similar - but more generic porter with cinnamon and nutmeg. Body is normal light porter. Finish is pumpkin pie like - but more like artificial pumpkin pie flavor. Interesting but not a repeat.

On tap at Three Kings. It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of roasty dark malts, pumpkin and spices. The taste was roasty, with pumpkin and spices. Nice.

Bottle on Halloween. Today I had pumpkin ravioli in Mt Morris and pumpkin ice cream in Avon. I might have one more pumpkin beer left. Oh, this one. Pour is a very dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is roasty malts with some spice. Flavor is a nice roasted malt with some cinnamon and spice. Finish is thin but has enough spice to be noticeable. Not great but a pumpkin porter is something different.

Dark Ebony with purple tone color Rich Porter with a shallow riding Gord aftertaste little metallics tasting as well. Not super great for a porter or pumpkin. It's really does taste better as the glass gets emptier but the initial tastes and first stips aren't very good, not very impressive. Needless to say it's a decent Porter for fall, okay pumpkin and perfect for raw cold rainy fall day.

Weak aroma of pumpkin spice with notes of chocolate. Taste if chocolate and spice. With a creamy feel and spice finish.

Starts out really harsh. Almost a drain pour. Let it warm a bit. Smell is almost non-existent. Appearance is dark brown, very little head, no lacing. Taste is decent, light porter with some pumpkin spice coming through. Not mind blowing, but for cheap it’s ok.

on draft pours a medium to dark brown with little to no head. the initial aroma was roasted malts and pumpkins with minor spices. the flavor I thought was very good...roasted malts. pumpkins and or yams, spices but not overbearing like some. flavor held its own all the way to the end.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a dark brown, with a medium tan head that slowly fades into a disk on the surface. decent lacing. Nose is pumpkin spice, and the taste follows the nose, with an odd dark malt note on the finish. Not bad, but nothing great. Okay as a seasonal change of pace.
